in the financial sector and in the united states is well known. typically the problem is some kind of oversight, even the attempted bomber on christmas and the national security problems we have had for the last few years. regulation that is required or needed to be overlooked -- needed could be overlooked. thank you. host: the vice chairman of the fed spoke at the conference in atlanta. in "the financial times" they reported, "the fed has been working internally for months on how, when the time comes, they would put an end to the exceptionally loose monetary policy adopted since 2008. that exit strategy is delicate for economic reasons, not least the $100 billion in excess reserves formed by the fed's massive increase to the size of its balance sheet. the fed has taken pains to emphasize that the proof -- preparation does not indicate an imminent change in strategy, as recover -- recovery remains anemic." md., -- excuse me, california. democratic line. gary. hello there. caller: basically what i believe is that this is simpler and i wanted to touch on something, historic leading interest rates

which is a huge security problem when dealing with devastation of this scale. here in the united states during hurricane katrina we had general honore who got it to happen. the united states is sending 2,000 marines to help the u.n. peace keepers who have served as police in haiti in the past. a little over a hundred will leave today. what they will do is prepare for the arrival of another roughly 800 personnel tomorrow. then some 2,200 marines are being deployed to help with security as well as search and rescue and the delivery of humanitarian supplies, so important. >> we're going to work with the international peacekeepers under the u.n. to supplement them in providing security. they have been basically the police force. haiti doesn't have an army. they didn't have have much police force. it is being rebuilt by the united nations with our assistance. this is a country that's suffered so many blows. last year it was four hurricanes. this year an earthquake. it is hard almost to imagine. but the people of haiti are resilient. they are a hopeful people. we are going to do everything we
of the united states government but still eight years after 9/11, the dots weren't connected. the puzzle pieces were there, but the intelligence agencies failed to put that puzzle together. that is what really has made the president angry and the reason he wants to see some changes. >> savannah, while you were talking we saw an aide from the white house press office bring the binder with the president's planned remarks out to the lectern. here comes the president through the center entrance of the blue room of the white house. >> good afternoon, everybody. i just concluded a meeting with members of my national security team including those from our intelligence, homeland security and law enforcement agencies involved in the security reviews that i ordered after the failed attack on christmas day. i called these leaders to the white house because we face a challenge of the utmost urgency. as we saw on christmas, al qaeda and its extremist allies will stop at nothing in their efforts to kill americans. were determined not only to thwart those plans but to disrupt, dismantle and defeat their nedwo

and actually seeing seeing hatred then and love now it's wonderful. >> god bless. god bless the united states of america. >> wow. hard to remove yourself as a newsperson from the emotions and the history of that day, but standing all the way down there at the lincoln memorial with reggie and with other folks that we had never met before it was profound. it was as profound a moment as i have ever experienced in this field. >> if you don't mind me saying this, you got emotional watching it. >> yeah just watching it. i was able to go as a citizen. many of us came to town i get emotional thinking about it. i came from parents who had to go to n many cases segregated schools. my integrated the university i eventually attended. it's hard to separate the emotion. >> my parents, the things they went through, things my grandparents went through, on that day, it was an african-american being sworn in as president of the united states. >> um-hum. >> you were sitting in that crowd, and you looked around and you saw people who had made it in wheelchairs and walkers, on this bitter c
in the united states and the earnings of the big companies that are about to report. in fact, i regard it as an inverse correlation. the more they fire here, the more money they make. and the hirer their stock goes. given that business is so bad in this country and better almost everywhere else, i believe companies will be penalized with lower stock prices if they hire here and will rally if they hire overseas where the growth is. what matters during earning season is less earnings, and right now joblessness equals profits. it's a fact. when it comes to this kind of thing, getting political, making judgments whether it's the congress' fault for making things so darn confusing and difficult for small business, or whether it's the rich moneybag bankers that shouldn't make their pay, maybe they're the problem. all of those things just obscure what we need to think about as investors, which is how much money companies are making from not hiring people. case in point, caterpillar. see that one today? stock folded $3.79. it was a stunning move. a stunning move. talk about a company that's la
. the companies that are rallying are divorced. divorced from the united states. and they aren't paying any alimony or child support. now, when you're on one of these money political shows, when you're discussing the prospects of the president and the democrats, you have to focus on the impact of job losses. and you know what you got to say! scary, sad. and you think all of these companies are deadbeats! [ gunfire ] that aren't hiring, their profits should be garnished if they're not helping the costs. but this is not a political show. if you own shares in a company, you must hope that the company is doing everything it can to take its business overseas. and you're not thinking of adding anyone here, because it's too expensive. and not productive enough. in fact, it's worse. companies based in america have realized that it pays to fire, not hire. fire, not fihire. don't believe me? look at u.p.s., which i learned from my charitable trust. the stom jumped 2.5 cents today after being up since last friday. why a second-day rally? i think you have a second-day rally because it shows the company
of the united states before christmas of this past year. and this organization, in the shadow of the cia, was created to connect the dots. we've heard the president of the united states say the dots were out there and we simply did not connect them. so will this guy be the guy to go in it's interesting because a little before christmas he did grant an interview to npr, national public radio, and in it, and this is very troubling, he says we're not going to stop every attack. he goes on to say americans have to understand that it is impossible to stop every terrorist event, but we have to do our best. is a guy, who is saying, hey, look, we can't catch all the balls, is he the one you want in the job? perhaps his head will roll. >> they said in langly, they can't believe he didn't return to the back cave because that's where it is called and that's where the clearinghouse is. some of the pictures you have seen in the local newspapers of a second floor shot looking down at a bunch of tables, that's the counter terror center. for him to put on his goggles and go down the ski slopes is uncons
day terror suspect and warning new attacks inside the united states. bin laden has not been heard from since september. in his message he calls umar farouk abdulmutallab a hero fighter and slams the u.s. and its support for israel. >> it is unfair that you enjoy a safe life while our brothers in gaza suffer greatly. therefore with god's will power attacks on you long continue as well as you continue to support israel. trace: u.s. authorities are working to authenticate the message. the former chief of the cia's bin laden unit. i guess by listening to this thing correctly he is not taking responsibility, claiming responsibility for this failed christmastide bombing. he certainly is endorsing it and praising it. >> yeah. i think that is exactly the conclusion to draw. my own suspicion is this fellow was trained in yemen, sent by al qaeda in yemen. most attacks against the united states in the united states are going to be authorized by osama bin laden. trace: i wonder, you look at the date of this thing. we are talking about a month after that failed christmas day attempt. why wait a mon
